HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Wednesday detained some 30 students who were on their way to school in the southern area of Hebron, locals said.
Locals told Ma'an that the students were transferred to Kiryat Arba police station, and the Israeli forces were detaining every student passing Tareq Bin Zeyad street.
Sources from the Palestinian military liaison department told Ma'an that they were making calls with the Israeli side to release the students. It was expected that the students would be released within hours.
An Israeli army spokeswoman did not immediately return calls, but military officials in Hebron said the students were caught throwing stones.
